Soulac & Invergordon
Iím nearing the end of the Euro/Med Library pics from my recent wacky teaching/lecture excursion. For todayís pictures, the ship was docked in Le Verdon, France, which is basically just a port. The shipís shuttle went into the nearby town of Soulac, which is a teeny little beach/vacation town right on the Atlantic. While the Library was closed, you can clearly see it looks a lot like many of our small town Public Libraries here in the states, complete with peeling sign. We ate yummy crepes and heard rare, fascinating and scary stories about life on a cruise ship during our time in town. Letís just say that lots of constant vigilance, hard work and luck keep cruises carefree for passengers. The close call stories are enthralling, even if you sometimes wonder just how true they are.
Also, here is the Public Library in Invergordon, Scotland. Anybody else been to the PL in Invergordon?Posted by libraryman at January 31, 2004 01:12 AM
